NDP leader Tom Mulcair brings his Campaign for Change to Toronto
This morning, NDP Leader Tom Mulcair took his Campaign for Change to Toronto. Mulcair was joined by the NDP’s team of MPs and new candidates for the Greater Toronto Area, as he outlined NDP successes for Canadians.
“Toronto is ready for change in Ottawa and in this election, it's the NDP that has the experience to defeat Stephen Harper and the plan to repair the damage he's done," said Mulcair.
"Over the last four years, our outstanding team of Toronto MPs has worked tirelessly for their communities and shown their constituents what happens when you elect hardworking and effective Members of Parliament," said Mulcair.
Despite the Conservative majority in the House of Commons, the NDP succeeded to end pay-to-pay billing, abolish the unfair tax on feminine hygiene products and ban harmful plastic microbeads in consumer products.
Toronto NDP Members of Parliament led a campaign focused on protecting local waterways, such as the Humber, Don and Rouge Rivers. Toronto NDP MPs were also at the forefront of efforts in Parliament to stop the Conservatives’ Unfair Elections Act and Stephen Harper's overreaching Bill C-51.
"On October 19, Toronto voters have a clear choice; four more years of Stephen Harper or our plan for change,” said Mulcair.
